New York Fashion Week has officially ended. The bi-annual fashion event wrapped on Thursday night.
Even if you missed out on Fashion Week, you don’t have to miss out on what happened. It was a star-studded event, but more so than usual. Anyone who is anyone was at one of the many runway shows that took place in New York City this week.
The Kardashian-Jenner clan took over New York Fashion Week. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian made a stylist entrance at the Givenchy show, where the mother-to-be wore a black sheer Goth-style gown.
Kylie Jenner, and her boyfriend Tyga, made their debut as a couple at various runway shows this past weekend. The famous teen also cozied up to Hailee Steinfeld and Bella Thorne at Fashion Week. And of course, Kendall Jenner walked various shows like Diane von Furstenberg, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, and Michael Kors.
Katy Perry made a fiery appearance at Harper BAZAAR ICONS event during Fashion Week on Thursday, September 17. She performed at the show with a special acoustic set, which received mixed reactions.
Other memorable celebrities to attend were Julia Roberts, Jessica Alba, Chrissy Teigen, Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Steven and Liv Tyler.
If celebrities weren’t seen sitting in front rows at shows that’s because they were debuting their own fashion lines. Kanye West, Victoria Beckham, Serena Williams, and Lauren Conrad were just some of the stars who debuted their eponymous lines at New York Fashion Week.
Now it’s time to talk about the shows and the trends. New York Fashion Week was filled with vibrant colors, bold prints, and plenty of beading and embroidery. The theme continued with Michael Kors who brought “earthy glamour” to his show, according to a report via the New York Daily News. His collection introduced some new colors like rosy red and cornflower blue, and of course the classics like camel and black.
Delpozo’s show featured couture styling mixed with carnival details like dots and circular shapes. The designer accessorized his kitschy designs with sequin and beaded floral pins, fringe necklaces, and ornaments that resembled crystal rock candy.
Naeem Khan and Kanye West showed their collections at the same time on Wednesday. What Naeem did, and Kanye didn’t was bring elegance to his show. His gowns included intricate details such as lace, embroidery, and sequins. Meanwhile, West stuck to his one-note normcore style as he featured Yeezy Season 2, which resembles his Yeezy Season 1 collection.
It wasn’t all about glamour and femininity. Fashion Week also brought technology to life thanks to Cynthia Rowley and Rebecca Minkoff. While Minkoff experimented with technology with accessories and athletic wear, Rowley took it one step further by having drones film her Spring/Summer 2016 collection in Montauk and then broadcasted it on the 200-foot mirrored runway.
Other memorable moments from Fashion Week was Givenchy’s first catwalk show, Alexander Wang’s 10th anniversary show, Ashley Graham hitting the runway in lingerie, and Madeline Stuart – an Australian model with Down syndrome – who made her NYFW debut.
We know what the most memorable moments of New York Fashion Week are, but what are the biggest trends of Spring 2016? With the hundreds of shows that took place at Fashion Week, it’s hard to get it all straight but the New York Daily News was able to cut it down into a top 10 list.

Just because New York Fashion Week is over doesn’t mean everyone’s going home. The city never sleeps for a reason and that’s because they love to party. There were parties all week long. On Wednesday, there was the formal party, which was hosted by Carine Roitfeld and photographer Jean-Paul Goude, and included the likes of Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. There’s no doubt there will be many more tonight, as both stars and designers bid farewell to Fashion Week.
